If you haven’t read the blog post where I compared an intranet to a day spa, click on over and read it before we continue here.
All set? Cool. So, here’s the thing. A day spa is the greatest thing ever, because it’s a central location where you can go to get all the pampering you could possibly want. Need a massage? Go to the day spa. Facial? Go to the day spa. Seaweed wrap? Day spa. You get my point.
An employee experience portal – what we at Akumina refer to as our “modern intranet” – is the day spa of your digital work experience. You might call it a portal, you might call it a hub, you might call it a dashboard; whatever you call it, it’s essential to your day-to-day productivity.
An employee experience portal is meant to help improve employee experience at your organization. Here are a couple benefits you will enjoy when you deploy yours.
There are two primary benefits of an employee experience portal, and unfortunately neither is easily measurable. But every good organization is already aware of and actively prioritizing both. The first benefit is increased productivity. The second is increased engagement. Both are crucial to an organization’s success.
In terms of productivity, the employee experience portal or employee experience platform is extremely helpful in streamlining day-to-day activities. There’s one required log in to access several tools (ending the endless loop of forgetting and resetting passwords), everything is easily accessible on a single page (reduced time spent looking for things), and project management is a cinch when all the tasks are presented in one place.
By removing the frustrations associated with having to use multiple tools to complete daily tasks, your organization can boost your employee’s engagement and satisfaction as well. When employees are engaged, they are focused and happy. They shift from being employees to brand ambassadors, and there’s no better to share your company’s story than through a satisfied employee.
Employee experience portals, modern intranets, employee hubs … whatever you choose to call them, they’re unifying, efficient, and collaborative. Implementing one can make all the difference in your employee’s experience at your organization. So, what are you waiting for? Get out and get one today!
